Naval Strike Missile
Adaptable, Long-Range Precision
The Naval Strike Missile (NSM) is a long-range, anti-ship missile that provides superior strike capability against land and sea targets with a range of just over 100 nautical miles. NSM blends technologies to give it a high level of survivability. The missile is difficult for enemy radars to detect, and its sophisticated flight capabilities allow it to reach targets in the most challenging environments.
Developed by Kongsberg in Norway, NSM is the main weapon for the Norwegian Navy's frigate and corvette ship classes, and Poland's truck-mounted coastal defense system.
The NSM was successfully demonstrated on the U.S. Navy's Littoral Combat Ship USS Coronado in 2014.
